The Invisalign® Process

The Invisalign® Process

The Invisalign® Process

The Invisalign process is relatively easy and straightforward.

Hello and welcome back to the blog of Szymanowski Orthodontics. Last time we blogged, we took some time to briefly talk about the streamlined process of Invisalign®. This short overview proved to be very popular with our patients and they’ve been asking us more and more questions about the process. Today, Dr. Szymanowski is blogging from beautiful Sacramento, CA to describe the full Invisalign process and what it entails. We hope this information satisfies our patient’s curiosity and gives them a better understanding of just how easy and straightforward teeth straightening with Invisalign is!

A Straightforward Method

Every journey to a perfect smile with Invisalign starts with a consultation at the Sacramento, CA office of Dr. Szymanowski. During your visit, the doctor will perform a thorough examination to discover whether or not Invisalign might be a good treatment option for your needs. If you check out as a good candidate for Invisalign, Dr. Szymanowski will develop a personalized treatment plan that will cover your entire teeth straightening procedure. This treatment plan will detail each and every move your teeth will make with every aligner you will wear. This plan will also reveal how long you can expect to undergo treatment with Invisalign.

Once your treatment plan is worked out, you will begin to receive your Invisalign aligners. What sets Invisalign’s aligners apart from traditional braces is the smooth, clear plastic they are made from. Unlike the metal wires and brackets of traditional braces, your Invisalign aligners will not irritate your gums or cut your tongue, making them far more comfortable. To maintain your teeth during treatment, all you have to do is remove the aligners and brush and floss like you normally would. When done, simply reapply them. So long as your aligners are worn for at least 22 hours a day, your treatment will be successful.

As your treatment continues, you will switch out your aligners for a new set every two weeks or so. With each new aligner you switch to, you will begin to notice your teeth moving closer and closer to perfection. Once you’ve finished with the final set of aligners detailed in your treatment plan, you will be ready to remove them for the last time and show off your brand new smile. At this point, Dr. Szymanowski may recommend a retainer for making sure your hard work doesn’t go to waste.
